Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. ARC 1980Description: 47 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 27 August 1980 ARC started in 1972 at the Brotherhood of St Laurence as The Family Centre Project. Action and Resource Centre (ARC) for low-income families opened in 1972 on a self-management basis, taking over from the Family Centre and continuing the Family Centre Project philosophy - 'low-income people need a voice and an organisation where they can help other low income people'. With 95 member families, fifteen members of the Family Centre were employed as resource workers. The ARC's Support Work Program (SWOP) provided employment for men who had been out of work for some time. The formal agreement between the BSL and the Action & Resource Centre was signed on 28 July 1976, the first step towards autonomy for the project.(BSL timeline)Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

by Victorian Competition and Efficiency Commission.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Victorian Competition & Efficiency Commission 2009Description: lvi, 269 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2009 Bibliography : p. 259-269Summary: Overall, the Commission considers that in many areas gains can be achieved from increasing the sharing of government and community facilities in Victoria, building in particular on the experience of those involved in sharing in the past, including in schools. Some modest increased participation by the private sector could be part of this. Shared facilities generally bring benefits; including improving service delivery and expanding the scope of services (especially in interactions between service providers), encouraging social connectedness within communities, facilitating access to and participation in activities (particularly among disadvantaged groups), improving efficiency (for example in maintenance costs) and better use of assets, including land. The mix of benefits varies across the range of shared facilities.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
